Travelling in a connected world

Travelling in a connected world

Technology today vs. yesteryear Technology has a way of aging you. Do you remember rotary phones, vinyl players, tube TVs, the walkman, and dial-up modems? I certainly do! I don’t remember the Gramophone, the Victrola, 8mm video or the Commodore 64 though. You can surmise my age range from […]

Packing for Madagascar, La Réunion and France

Packing for Madagascar, La Réunion and France

Packing for a trip with different climates and vibes has been a challenge. It’s been a while, too, since I’ve done any sort of backpacking or adventure travel so I have almost forgotten what it’s like to pack for it. Madagascar and La Réunion will […]

Continued…Planning La Réunion…

Continued…Planning La Réunion…

As mentioned in my previous post, La Réunion has proven to be a very difficult destination to plan, especially as a native English speaker and non-driver. I have finally solidified my plans. I’d prefer to have more flexibility, but with limited information and infrastructure, settling on […]

Planning La Réunion…to be continued

Planning La Réunion…to be continued

Sometime, somehow, I stumbled upon a picture of La Réunion and I decided that I needed to go there. The landscape seemed surreal, jurassic, and lush. This was years ago and my dream is finally coming to fruition since I will be going there in […]

Planning my next trip…to the Indian ocean!

Planning my next trip…to the Indian ocean!

Back in 2013, I wrote a list of my dream destinations. I’ve been fortunate to tackle a couple of items on the list, Copenhagen and Sweden in 2014, and in about a month, I’ll be visiting a few of the more remote places. As I mentioned in […]

Travel recap of the last two years

Travel recap of the last two years

Since my last documented destination, Copenhagen, I have travelled to a few more places but I have not done an extensive trip since then. Why? First, I landed a job that was fun but busy. I never thought I would ever prioritize career over travel […]

Copenhagen: The city of the future

Copenhagen: The city of the future

Denmark is a country I have always wanted to visit but actually knew very little about. Unlike Sweden, I didn’t know very much about its culture, besides its socialist leanings, Soren Kierkegaard, Roskilde, The Raveonettes and Aqua. One other thing I did know about Denmark […]

Stockholm: The city of my dreams

Stockholm: The city of my dreams

I had long dreamed of visiting Sweden. The seeds were sown when I was a teenager and I learned about their social democratic system which resulted in relatively low rates of child poverty, green energy initiatives, great transportation infrastructure and a general high quality of […]

London

London

A friend once said that the most surreal aspect of London is how oddly familiar the city feels, mostly because of how iconic its sites and buildings are. I certainly understood what she meant the minute I arrived in the great capital of England as […]

Scotland: Where the warmth meets the cold

Scotland: Where the warmth meets the cold

Although I had some pretty high expectations of Scotland, I was still surprised my how much I loved it there. In many ways, the scenery reminded me of New Zealand: rolling green hills dotted with white sheep, u-shaped valleys and mountains surrounded by a beautiful […]
